My son wanted to be Gilligan from the TV show Gilligan's Island. I was able to find all of his costume pieces online, but he really wanted to have a Minnow too. I made him a Minnow that he could wear while he trick-or-treated. It was a huge hit and he still enjoys playing with it at home.
- I created the boat out of a cardboard box. Then I covered it with white duct tape, slightly overlapping the strips of tape.
- I used scrapbooking letters to write SS Minnow on both sides, near the bow of the boat.
- I added yarn straps that criss cross in the back to allow the boat to hang over his shoulders.
- Have fun trick-or-treating!!
